Better Jobs  •  Better Lives  •  Better Communities

The Times Are a Changin’ – It Ain’t Your Daddy’s Workplace

New generations are spearheading change in the workforce. The old ways of doing business no longer apply. Join us at one of two workshops to learn key ways the current workforce is changing, and what your business must do to adapt and remain in compliance with the new changes.

In addition, for the first time on record, we officially have more job openings than unemployed people in our country. Locally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that our unemployment rate is at 3.2% and according to many leading economists, we reach "full employment" when our unemployment rate hits 4.5%. That’s a level that we haven’t seen in Pensacola since October of 2015, 3 full years ago.

That being said, the question most companies are asking is, “How do we attract and hire the right employees, and what steps can we take to ensure that we have the necessary talent to sustain and grow our business?”

To keep businesses up to date with the latest updates on employment laws and hiring trends, we'll spend time exploring:

  • Pay Equity

  • Alternative Work Arrangements (Flex time, remote employees, etc.)

  • Succession Planning

  • Violence/Bullying in the Workplace

  • Sexual Harassment

  • Marijuana in the Workplace

  • Specific market data and demographic trends

  • A framework for an attraction and hiring strategy in 2019

Let's welcome 2019 prepared and ready to succeed!

Who Should Attend:

We recommend this workshop for anyone who is in charge of hiring or managing other employees, including but not limited to supervisors and/or HR professionals. One small, seemingly-innocent mistake could mean an expensive lawsuit - so it's an important topic for your leaders to be knowledgeable in.

Amie Remington and Jim Howe
